Here’s Why Panic! At the Disco Is Disbanding

Panic! At the Disco will be no more.

That’s what Brendon Urie announced in a post on social media.

It began, “Well, it’s been a hell of a journey. Growing up in Vegas I could’ve never imagined where this life would take me. So many places all over the world, and all the friends we’ve made along the way.”

Urie went on to talk about how a journey must end for a new one to begin. He said, “We’ve been trying to keep it to ourselves, though some of you may have heard. Sarah and I are expecting a baby very soon! The prospect of being a father and getting to watch my wife become a mother is both humbling and exciting. I look forward to this next adventure.”

He added, “That said, I am going to bring this chapter of my life to an end and put my focus and energy on my family, and with that Panic! At The Disco will be no more.”

Urie went on to thank the people who supported the band through the years.

He wrote, “I’ve sat here trying to come up with the perfect way to say this and I truly can’t put into words how much it has meant to us. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or are just finding us, it has been a pleasure to not only share the stage with so many talented people but also share our time with you. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Europe and the UK for one last run together.”

The band is currently on its Viva Las Vengeance tour, which supports the album of the same name. It is set to end on March 10, 2023, and is Panic! At the Disco’s final concert tour.

Urie ended the note with, “I love you. I appreciate you. Thank you for existing.”

Panic! At the Disco was formed in 2004 by Urie and his childhood friends Ryan Ross, Spencer Smith, and Brent Wilson. They released their first album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, which had the single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies.” This was followed by six albums: Pretty. Odd., Vices & Virtues, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, Death of a Bachelor, Pray for the Wicked, and Viva Las Vengeance.

The band had a rotating set of members until 2015 when it became a solo project of Urie.
